Buying a wrecked F650GS or F800GS

I'm thinking about buying a crashed bike, salvage title as a project, since I'm planning a trip from UT to Lima I don't need a showroom bike.
I think I could get them for a decent price, but for what I see they don't really go for cheap on insurance auctions, plus fees and transportation the cost could be really close to the price of any used bike.
I did this years ago with cars, bought them crashed, rebuild and sell them for a small profit, I like the idea of trying with bikes and with the upcoming trip it won't hurt to save a couple bucks.
Any advice, anybody did it out there. Opinions, ideas, anything could help.
